Forecast: More heat with only a few evening storms

June is typically the wettest month of the year for Southwest Florida, but it certainly hasn’t played out that way this week.  Rain chances will be very isolated again this afternoon, which means the summer heat will be front and center.  Highs will range from 92-95 this afternoon, but the heat index will be as high as 100 degrees during the peak heating of the day.  Any showers and storms that develop for the rest of today should be focused around the late evening hours before the area turns dry tonight.  Overall, rain chances stay limited through the end of the week, although...

Forecast: Hot with limited rain chances Wednesday

We’ve got the summer heat, but our summertime storms will be fairly limited today with just a few isolated showers and storms developing by the mid to late afternoon. Temperatures will toasty again as daytime highs touch the mid-90s from 1 to 4 p.m. If you’re lucky enough to see one of those isolated showers, the rain-cooled air will drop temperatures quickly for some of us.  Rain chances today will run around 20-30% with coast locations in line to see the best opportunity for a shower or storm.  Don’t expect any big changes to the forecast Thursday and Friday....

Forecast: Staying hot with a few storms

The warm trend continues as highs soar to the mid-90s today with overnight lows gradually falling into the 70s. Dew points will remain high with no relief in humidity in sight.  The best chance for hit or miss showers and storms comes this afternoon and evening though there will still be many areas that remain dry.  The National Hurricane Center has increased the chance of development for an area in the southwestern Caribbean to a 30% chance of organizing over the next 5 days. The NBC2 Weather Team will keep you updated on air and online.  The post Forecast: Staying hot with...

Forecast: Isolated rain coverage tonight

Southwest Florida will see isolated rain coverage for the next several afternoons as a ridge of high pressure in the atmosphere along with some comparatively drier air aloft helps to lower the amount of rain we see.  Temperatures during this stretch of time will trend warmer with mid 90s on Tuesday and Wednesday.   Timing of any showers or thunderstorms that develop the next two days will likely be pinned to late in the afternoon or evening.  During the overnight hours this week temperatures will remain mid and muggy.  A nighttime low between 70 and 75 is expected for the majority...

Forecast: Hot & dry start to the week

A brief break from the typical rainy season pattern is ahead for the start of the week. A strong bubble of high pressure is expected to move over the peninsula from the Bahamas Monday, keeping rain chances near zero for much of the area.  If anything were to develop, it would likely be a light shower, not a storm.  Vertical development will be limited in this regime due to dry air aloft and strong sinking motions in the atmosphere.  Additionally, temperatures will soar into the mid 90s, marking the hottest day of the year for some spots. By midweek, this high will shift towards the...

Forecast: Rain starts early Friday

Don’t get caught off guard this morning! The rain machine will get turned on a bit earlier today with scattered showers possible during the morning hours across Lee, Collier, and Charlotte County.  The morning won’t be a washout, but some passing showers and storms will be possible before the lunch hour, and we’ll see more scattered rain through the afternoon.  The highest rain chances during the afternoon will be a little deeper inland, particularly east of I-75.  A few areas of rain will linger into the evening, but most areas will be dry after 8 p.m.  With the...

Forecast: Morning sun & afternoon storms Thursday

If you need to get anything done outdoors today, make sure to take advantage of the sunny, quiet weather this morning.  Expect more rain and rumbles across the area today, and the rain will get going a little earlier than Wednesday.  Isolated showers will start to form around the lunch hour, and the rain coverage will expand throughout the afternoon.  The favored spots for rain today will be Collier, Lee and Charlotte County with more isolated storms across the interior.  The morning sun will warm us up into the upper 80s and lower 90s before the rain begins, and the air will feel...

Forecast: Still waiting on rain? More storms on the way Wednesday

If you’re still waiting to get some rain to water your parched lawns after the long dry season, hang in there! There’s more rain and storms back in the forecast today.  However, some of us will get soaked while others stay completely dry, which is just the nature of the beast as we get in the rainy season.  For the morning hours, expect another dry and sunny start with temperatures warming into the upper 80s by noon and daytime highs pushing into the lower 90s before the rain cools some of us off this afternoon.  Today’s storms will favor locations close to the...

Forecast: Afternoon storms for your Memorial Day

Yesterday some of us finally picked up measurable rain as rainy season has finally arrived in Southwest Florida. Yesterday the storms were along and slightly east of I-75, but this afternoon rain and storms will be focused right along the coast, so if you have a beach day planned, make sure you know where you can wait out the storms when they arrive late this afternoon. In terms of when you can get outside for your Memorial Day ceremonies; any time before lunch! We have an east wind today, which will push the seabreeze (and therefore storms) toward the coast, but it also means a...

Forecast: Rainy season finally kicks in

Happy Sunday Southwest Florida! Like yesterday we are waking up to more humid air compared to last weekend, but unlike yesterday, this humidity will actually fuel chances for rain this afternoon! You can still get outside today as the morning will be mainly dry. A few isolated showers are possible near the coast, but the morning is basically going to be muggy and dry. By lunchtime, our seabreeze will start to develop just east of I-75 before pushing toward Lake Okeechobee. This means our best chance for storms will be east of I-75 out toward the Lake during the late afternoon until...
